From an Anglo-French family, André Mangeot grew up in Kent, Yorkshire and Suffolk before graduating from Oxford. He has published two previous collections (Natural Causes and Mixer), two books of short stories (A Little Javanese and True North) and written three novels. For over ten years he was a member of the poetry collective, The Joy of Six, which performed at festivals across the UK. He works as a charity fundraiser and consultant and divides his time between East Anglia and South Wales, in particular the Brecon Beacons. His first collection with Seren Blood Rain is available now.
